MSMAS Judo Player Emyr ap Sion competes at Northern Ireland Open Championships !!

Held at the Queens University in Belfast, Northern Ireland.


Emyr was again just outside the medals, but enjoyed the experience..

Emyr faced the toughest fight in the first round where he faced an on-form Danny Williams who recently narrowly lost out on a bronze in the GB Open, and who would eventually win the Gold in Northern Ireland.

Despite a confident start, Emyr was eventually thrown for Ippon by a well-executed Sumi-Gaeshi.

In the next fight, 'the repercharge' Emyr felt as he had something to prove - and prove it he did with a fast and very sweet O-Uchi-Gari for Ippon.

Harry Fenner was his next opponent, who took advantage of his opportunity to strangle Emyr into submission, then proceeded on to win the Bronze 'on the day'.

Despite conceding that he lost to two better Judo competitors, Emyr returned a very disappointed and frustrated fighter because he insisted he should and could have at least made it a bit of a harder contest for both fighters.

Nevertheless, he now looks forward to his next Tournament and future challenges.
